tom's-face

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.

40 Year Old Doctor Who Episode Holds Timely Warning For Today

“You know, the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common.  They don’t alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views.”

In the classic Doctor Who story “The Face of Evil”, the Doctor (Tom Baker) and his companion Leela (Louise Jameson) attempt to usher a peace between two warring tribes.  The Doctor reminds us in the episode that those in charge sometimes have an interesting way of dealing with facts.  Over the weekend, the Trump administration engaged in exactly the practice the Doctor warned of, with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer lying about the attendance of Trump’s inauguration, and Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway later saying that Spicer wasn’t lying, he was using ‘alternative facts’.  Something to keep in mind as we watch this administration develop over the next four years.
